More cool stuff with mobiles

Here is the semapedia gallery in Flickr….. so what’s that all about? Well, the gallery demonstrates the use of physical annotation technology to tag things in meatspace that will provide quick information to mobile users. So you tag an object that connects directly to Wikipedia information. Here's how it works: the Semacode system generates a black-and-white printout that you tape directly onto the object and then the printout functions rather like a barcode. A passer-by ‘scans’ the Semacode with a smartphone which connects directly to the wiki. Information-on-the-go mmmmm... future perfect.
